Parkmobile Mobile Parking Payment System Now Available
The City of San Leandro will go live with the Parkmobile Mobile Parking Payment Solution on February 15, 2018, allowing customers to use their mobile devices to pay for metered parking in the city.
Since the adoption of the Downtown San Leandro Parking Management Plan in Summer 2017, City staff has been actively working to transform the San Leandro parking experience. Parkmobile was selected to support the City’s Downtown San Leandro Parking Management Plan to provide a citywide mobile payment solution. Customers will no longer be limited to payment with coins at meters but now will have the option to pay for parking via phone (text, call, or mobile application), using the Zone Number marked on each meter.
App users may also choose to receive a reminder prior to the expiration of their parking session, and if the maximum parking time has not been reached, users can extend their time from the app. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device and the user’s license plate number. Additionally, multiple payment methods are offered through the app, including Masterpass, PayPal, Visa Checkout, Chase Pay, Parkmobile Wallet, and Apple Pay.
As the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country with 8 million people using Parkmobile’s services over 60 million times per year, Parkmobile provides similar mobile payment services in our neighboring communities including Oakland, Berkeley and Walnut Creek. This provides customers an existing familiarity with the service and the opportunity to establish an account that provides quick transaction to initiate a parking session.
